Wow, what a bunch of loser we are! <img alt="wink.gif" src=""><br><br>
Great challenge everybody, and thanks so much, Heavy, for doing this. It's been a great incentive for me, as well as a chance to become acquainted with some new PRTers.<br><br>
Great job, everybody!!

Heh, this made me laugh this morning. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
Great job to everyone!<br><br>
HH, do you have the list of our biggest losers? I know JC did great, even losing while he's on his cruise!!<br><br>
We'll start the next round April 1. If you want out of the challenge, post in the other thread in this forum. If you don't tell me, I'm going to assume you want to keep playing! <img alt="smile.gif" src=""><br><br>
Kick ass job, everyone! <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="">

It is impressive. I was simultaneously in a community-weight-loss type of challenge locally along the lines of Biggest-Loser and in that one, there was 4-times the number of people, but the weight loss wasn't even double what was done here. As runners/athletes, I gotta believe, in addition to fitness & nutrition knowledge, this group here also demonstrates some great commitment and talent at shedding the pounds. It's one thing to "know how" to lose weight, but it's a whole other story to prove it. Good goin' everyone!!<br><br><span style="font-size:small;">/and dagnabit JC... I'll getcha in the next round, there's still jrjo waistilne left to go <img alt="surprised.gif" src=""></span>

This is about indicative of how much has been lost in past challenges, too.<br><br>
They've been a bit longer (12-13 weeks) but the others were also done over the holidays, and 200+ people have usually lost about 1,000+ lbs
